What distinction does the Pasuk draw between the sale of a field and the sale of a house in a walled town?

3)

Why does the Torah add the 'Vav' at the end of "Sh'nas Mimkaro"?

1.

Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: It implies a full year from day to day, and not until the end of the year (Erev Rosh ha'Shanah). 1

2.

Da'as Zekenim: This Parshah alludes to Hashem, who 'sold' Eretz Yisrael to Bavel for 70 years (due to the 70 Shemitah years that were not observed). At the end of this time, He will redeem the sale (return the land to Yisrael).


1

Torah Temimah (citing Erchin, 18b): Because it implies "Mimkaro", 've'Lo Shanah shel Minyan' Olam'.

What is the meaning of "Yamim" (on its own)?

Rashi: Like we find in Bereishis 24:55).

Why does a house in a walled town not revert to the seller in Yovel, like a field does? The Torah gave greater redemption rights for a house, i.e. he can redeem within one year!
